    my dad built this over 25 years ago, it features a removeable air tank and was built from mostly discarded parts. i recently replaced the pressure switch and painted it. its alot quieter than the new pancake-style compressors available today and does what i need it to do. [​IMG]

    yes it gets used, not big enough to run a impact, but works for airing tires up and doing small stuff with. much queiter than the direct-drive stuff thats out now.

    That's cool that you have that your Dad built.

    Real "Old school" look.
